Innovation as culture rather than as a technique or functionhttp://www.usb-ed.com/WatchReadListen/Pages/Innovation-as-culture-rather-than-as-a-technique-or-function.aspxInnovation as culture rather than as a technique or functionDr Shawn CunninghamThought Thursdaysstring;#2018string;#February​It is not easy to improve the innovation culture of an organisation. It, for instance, has nothing to do with the allocation of tasks, the setting up of functions or the adoption of tools. Rather, it has everything to do with changing relations between people within and beyond the confines of the organisation. Innovation needs to be central in organisations and not a project or sideshow relegated to this officer or that. The culture of innovation really resides in the business strategy – a different way of looking at the world – and management itself should be central.
The organisation of the future: Exploring What if?http://www.usb-ed.com/WatchReadListen/Pages/The-organisation-of-the-future-Exploring-What-if.aspxThe organisation of the future: Exploring What if?Terry MeyerThought Thursdaysstring;#2018string;#February​Is your organisation on its way to becoming a dinosaur heading for extinction, while your competitors smartly adapt to new ways of running organisations? This need not be the fate of your company if certain culture and design characteristics are either present or adopted, like agility and collaboration. But what may interest you most may be the kinds of innovation that will be necessary in future to stay relevant and effective. Consider combining support services to serve a strategic function, or finally abandoning silos to achieve the pinnacle of collaboration. And how about embracing the 'gig economy' and adopting 'pulse' surveys?
Factionalism – The leadership challengehttp://www.usb-ed.com/WatchReadListen/Pages/Factionalism–The-leadership-challenge.aspxFactionalism – The leadership challengeDr Charles Du ToitThought Thursdaysstring;#2018string;#February​In our political arena, factionalism has been recognised as a major destructive force capable of severing the ANC's hold on power. Hence the urgent appeals for unity by the new leader of the ANC, Cyril Ramaphosa. Organisations, too, are political and therefore prone to factionalism. But, can organisations function in an ideal, non-political domain? Can firms perform optimally without competition between individuals? How much self-interest or factional interest can be allowed? To manage these dynamics, it would serve leaders well to understand factionalism and its motivating forces. ​
What millennials want in a mentorhttp://www.usb-ed.com/WatchReadListen/Pages/what-millennials-want-in-a-mentor.aspxWhat millennials want in a mentorby MediaVision on behalf of USB-EDWe Read For Youstring;#2017string;#December​Niël Steinmann, author of the book Crucial Mentoring Conversations, that was presented at the year-end We Read for You (WRFY) presentation, held recently by USB Executive Development (USB-ED) and finweek in Cape Town.​
Endings and beginningshttp://www.usb-ed.com/WatchReadListen/Pages/Endings-and-beginnings.aspxEndings and beginningsFrik LandmanThought Thursdaysstring;#2017string;#December​As we approach the end of the year, we become aware of endings and, soon thereafter, new beginnings. We so easily drift into contemplative mode how overwhelmed we are by the myriad of endings and beginnings that crowd our daily lives. But, as leaders with critical faculties, and as Africans sharing the Pan African vision of the African Union, it is our character, our ethos that should lift and bear us forward. We need to ignite in ourselves and in others the future-directed mindset. This is, after all, a great African adventure where we can choose our endings – and avoid the endings choosing us.

The eighth Wonder of the Worldhttp://www.usb-ed.com/WatchReadListen/Pages/The-eighth-Wonder-of-the-World.aspxThe eighth Wonder of the WorldElton PullenThought Thursdaysstring;#2017string;#November​It is said that Albert Einstein dubbed compound interest the eighth Wonder of the World. A substantial accolade indeed! Why is it then that most of us are not using the power of compound interest to our best advantage? Some of us may even have compound interest working against us! To tap into this wonder, make sure you understand it, but, more than that, actively use it. Here are some helpful guidelines and considerations when investing.
